Because stomata in bryophytes occur on sporangia, they are subject to different developmental and evolutionary constraints from those on leaves of tracheophytes. No conclusive experimental evidence exists on the responses of hornwort stomata to exogenous stimulation.

Stomata are adjustable valves through which gas and water exchange occur in plant leaves. Here, McKown and Bergmann highlight the essential function and features of stomata from grasses.
Bacterial sensing is important for perceiving environmental cues and activating responses. In this issue of Cell Host & Microbe, Hertzog et al. (2018) show that group A Streptococcus can couple the a...
As plants evolved to function on land, they developed stomata for effective gas exchange, for photosynthesis and for controlling water loss. We have recently shown that sugars, as the end product of p...
Water-use efficiency (WUE) is a quantitative measurement of biomass produced per volume of water transpired by a plant. WUE is an important physiological trait for drought response to mitigate the wat...
Environmental cues can influence basic perceptual and attentional processes especially in an emotional context. In the current study, we aimed to investigate the effect of a non-emotional common envir...
This 5-week study will examine the effects of naltrexone on alcohol craving, drinking rates, and reaction to drinking-related triggers, or cues, in participants' everyday environment and i...
Background: - Multiple social, psychological, and environmental factors contribute to adolescents' use of cigarettes. Environmental smoking cues have been shown to play an importa...
The objectives of this proposal are to examine the role of context in a virtual reality (VR) environment and to explore the extent to which cues (i.e., contextual cues or explicit smoking ...
Many patients suffer from a topographical disorientation after a traumatic brain injury. Virtual Reality settings allow us to develop navigational cues, in order to rehabilitate patients o...
In this study we, the investigators at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, intend to explore whether bupropion is able to reduce smokers' responses to cigarette-related environme...
Signals for an action; that specific portion of a perceptual field or pattern of stimuli to which a subject has learned to respond.
A process through which individuals encode information about their environmental CUES to facilitate SPATIAL NAVIGATION.
Natural openings in the subdiaphragmatic lymphatic plexus in the PERITONEUM, delimited by adjacent mesothelial cells. Peritoneal stomata constitute the principal pathways for the drainage of intraperitoneal contents from the PERITONEAL CAVITY to the LYMPHATIC SYSTEM.
Seasonal suspension of insect growth development. It can be either induced by environmental cues (e.g., PHOTOPERIOD) or as a facultative part of the life cycle in order to time development with seasonal changes.
An insecticide and herbicide that has also been used as a wood preservative. Pentachlorphenol is a widespread environmental pollutant. Both chronic and acute pentachlorophenol poisoning are medical concerns. The range of its biological actions is still being actively explored, but it is clearly a potent enzyme inhibitor and has been used as such as an experimental tool.
